幸福过了头 8.5分
读书笔记 纯属虚构
弗兰
在回家的路上,就在快拐进自己家地产的地方,乔伊丝最喜欢看见的是,有些人,甚至有些还是住在稻草屋顶下的人,也在院子里装上了落地玻璃门。这些门,通常窗帘都没拉上,灯光从两块长方形里透出来,仿佛是某种舒适、安全以及休闲的象征。为什么相比普通窗户,它们更会让人有这样的感觉,乔伊丝也不是太明白。也许因为它们大部分的功能不光是往外看,而且直接通往森林的黑暗,于是便自然地展现了家给人的安全和温暖。人们在玻璃门内做饭或者看电视,这种景象深深地诱惑了她,虽然她心里明明知道,屋里的生活并没有什么特别的。

There was the one special thing that Joyce loved to see as she was driving home and turning in to their own property. At this time many people, even some of the thatched-roof people, were putting in what were called patio doors—even if like Jon and Joyce they had no patio. These were usually left uncurtained, and the two oblongs of light seemed to be a sign or pledge of comfort, of safety and replenishment. Why this should be so, more than with ordinary windows, Joyce could not say. Perhaps it was that most were meant not just to look out on but to open directly into the forest darkness, and that they displayed the haven of home so artlessly. Full-length people cooking or watching television—scenes which beguiled her, even if she knew things would not be so special inside.
